Formerly home to native Emirati people who worked as fishermen and pearl divers, since Dubai’s development boom the city landscape has transformed dramatically into one typified by its state-of-the-art architecture and dazzling wealth. The Financial District in which this Hot Rate hotel is ideally located is now colonised by some of the tallest and most impressive skyscrapers in the world. The nearby Sheikh Zayed Road leads to the famed Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina, allowing guests to reach the warm waters of the Persian Gulf within a matter of minutes.

Translating to literally mean ‘beautiful’, the adjacent coastal area of Jumeirah is undoubtedly Dubai’s most sought after location, owing to its fantastically luxurious real estate, world class restaurants, premium shopping and vast harbours filled with extravagant yachts. Hotel guests are advised to head to the pristine white sand Jumeirah Beach to enjoy the crystal clear sea and perhaps try out some water sports, such as jet skiing and paddle boarding. From here, the spectacularly impressive man-made World Islands development can be seen, the only archipelago of its kind to be constructed.

Further inland lies the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai. Greater than even the Pyramid of Giza, the Khalifa boasts a height of an astonishing 2,722 ft and features an outdoor observation deck offering unrivalled panoramas across the city skyline and out towards the Gulf. The structure itself is surrounded by 27 acres of tranquil parkland designed to reflect the symmetry of a desert flower. Featuring 6 water features and a range of exotic gardens, the park is the perfect place in which to relax in the shade whilst admiring the awe-inspiring tower.
